So I am looking for info on upcoming software updates and when i come across the koodo update schedule i see that the info is way out of date. Is this going to be updated any time soon or will we all be left in the dark?
It doesn't seem like Koodo is maintaining the update schedule anymore. I'd suggest following the Telus schedule as a rough guide (i.e. don't expect the update to come out at the same time as Telus, but it shouldn't be too far behind): https://forum.telus.com/t5/Mobility/Software-Update-Schedule/ta-p/53566
Not sure what you guys mean. This article is indeed maintained:
Apparently since Koodo is owned by Telus, and Telus sells the Essential phone, I have to wait for Telus/Koodo to push the update out. If I switch to a different service provider that does not sell the phone or whose parent company does not sell the phone, I will get my updates directly from Essential. That is an option that I'm seriously considering.
Just a quick update. I purchased a SIM from a different provider for my PH-1 which I purchased directly from Essential. When I inserted the new SIM, my phone instantly updated. I don't think that Koodo customers should not have to go through the inconvenience and expense of using another provider's SIM, but it beats waiting months for a Koodo/Telus update.
